  • 8-10 slices brioche bread thickly sliced
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


  • Preheat air fryer to 370 degrees F.
  • In a large shallow bowl whisk together eggs, milk, cream, sugars, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Dip both sides of the bread into the egg mixture, soak for a few minutes.
  • Place the bread in the preheated air fryer basket and cook for 4 minutes, flip and cook for an additional 4-6 minutes or until the bread is golden and crispy in color.
  • Repeat with other slices of bread.
  • Serve with berries, powdered sugar, and maple syrup.



  • Your bread slices should be thick, so they can soak up a lot of that delicious custard without getting mushy and falling apart.
  • Also, try your hand at making everything from scratch— bake up your own homemade brioche!
  • Don’t skip the preheating part. This way, the custardy bread starts to cook up the moment you close the air-fryer lid. This helps you get crisp, not mushy toasts.
  • In addition, you can use pure white or pure brown sugar if you don’t have both.
